I’m ready for comparisons- Amrita Arora
By Swati R Chaudhary, Bollywood Trade News Network
The very enchanting Amrita Arora is all set to relive the role immortalized by Saira Bano in the remake of VICTORIA NO 203. “The film has me in two get ups. I play two different characters- that of a simple girl and a Tomboy. The premise is the same as the original film, interspersed with a flavour of 2007,” reveals Amrita.
VICTORIA NO 203 (1972) was directed and produced by Brij Sadanah, father of actor Kamal Sadanah and starred Ashok Kumar, Pran, Navin Nischol and Saira Banu. It is being remade by Ananth Mahadevan and produced by Kamal Sadanah. The remake stars Anupam Kher, Om Puri, Jimmy Shergill and Amrita Arora.
Half the film has Amrita masquerading as a man along with the sexy towel dance.
Ask her of the inevitable comparisons that remakes spark and instantly comes the unperturbed reply, “Sairaji is a lovely charming actress. Comparisons are bound to happen and I am ready to face it.”
Amrita also has Vikram Bhatt’s RED and SPEED in her kitty. “RED is a dark thriller where I play a mysterious girl with a tinge of negative shades to her character. RED involves all elements of red namely about revenge, anger, passion and danger,” she enthuses.
“SPEED as the title implies is a fast paced film. It’s an action thriller,” Amrita signs off.
SPEED has an ensemble cast also starring Zayed Khan, Urmila Matondkar, Aftab Shivdasani, Sanjay Suri, Sophie Chaudhary and Tanushree Datta.
Amrita has also signed a film with Kalpana Lajmi but doesn’t wish to talk about it till the project gets rolling.
